Spicy Soy Shrimp Pasta

Looking for a quick weeknight meal? This spicy shrimp pasta is yummy, but simple. Serve with a little salad and you've got dinner done in no time.

Spicy Soy Shrimp Pasta
1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined and tails removed
8 ounces cooked pasta (I chose whole wheat spaghetti) 
Salt & pepper
1 green onion (green parts only), thinly sliced

Whisk together oil, cheese, garlic, brown sugar, soy sauce, and red pepper flakes. Toss with shrimp in a large ziplock bag. Marinate for 30 minutes to overnight.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the shrimp and all of the sauce to the skillet and cook until the shrimp is opaque and pink (about 4 or 5 minutes). Stir in the cooked pasta until the pasta is well-coated with the sauce. Season with salt & pepper or additional red pepper flakes if you would like to increase the spice.

Sprinkle with green onions.
